How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs and interests by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us to analyse data about web page traffic and to improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes, and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us to provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline non-essential cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

In order for this site to act as an ecommerce site, some cookies (creation of baskets, progression to checkouts etc) are essential. Without them you will not be able to properly browse or transact on this site. Therefore, by continuing to use the website, you accept the essential cookies.

Sharing information

Sometimes, we may share your personal data with third parties we work with, for example, companies that support our website or run our email marketing campaigns. If we share personal data with third parties outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), we ensure that it receives the same protection as within the EEA.

The only circumstance under which we share personal data with third parties based in the United States is if they are part of the EU-US Privacy Shield
